This outbreak has been given many names other than swine flu, like the H1N1 Influenza, 2009 H1N1 flu, Mexican flu or the Swine – origin flu.Thanks to the moderate nature of the H1N1 strains of the influenza virus causing the current pandemic of swine flu that the mortality and morbidity remained lower than what was feared last year.
